Woodstock at 50: A Fake, Exploitative Jewish Hell

THIS THURSDAY through Sunday marks the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival, famously billed as “Three Days of Peace and Music.” It might be more accurately described as four days of mud and myth-making, although the latter has stretched on for decades.

For an event described as an Aquarian exposition, its origins were remarkably mercenary. Woodstock was conceived as a get-rich-quick scheme, primarily by three Jews, Michael Lang, Artie Kornfeld, and Joel Rosenman. But a non-Jew, John P. Roberts (1945 – 2001), bankrolled the event with some input from Rosenman. Roberts was the heir to the Polident denture adhesive fortune. The group placed an ad in the New York Times: “Young men with unlimited capital looking for interesting, legitimate investment opportunities and business propositions.” They eventually partnered with a record company executive and the promoter of the relatively small Miami Pop Festival. When plans for a music studio in Woodstock, New York, went awry, the quartet settled on the idea of an art and music festival.

The promoters had difficulty securing a site, because Woodstock wanted nothing to do with them. They leased an industrial site in Wallkill. The city council passed laws effectively banning the concert in July 1969, believing the promoters had not adequately planned the sanitation and logistics for the 50,000 promoters represented would attend. They were definitely inadequate for the more than 150,000 advance tickets already sold.

A deal to relocate in Saugerties fell through before Jewish dairy farmer Max Yasgur offered land in Bethel for the festival. Yasgur was also given the 50,000 attendance estimate. Contrary to the legend, the concert was not on the dairy part of Yasgur’s farm, but on his alfalfa fields that had been fertilized with manure.

The misrepresentations regarding tickets sales and the last-minute scrambling for a location meant that the fencing and on-site ticket booths were quickly overwhelmed by the nearly 500,000 people who ultimately showed up. The promoters were forced to declare the event a free concert, which only attracted more hippies. “Overwhelmed” would become a theme for Woodstock, well beyond the 10-mile-long traffic jam on the New York Thruway, exits on which were shut down to deter further waves of concertgoers.

Established food vendors wanted nothing to do with Woodstock, so the promoters hired an inexperienced group called “Food For Love.” As their supplies ran out, they naturally increased prices, which resulted in angry mobs burning down two concession stands. The “Hog Farm Collective” hired for security and support services stepped in with emergency supplies of brown rice, vegetables, and granola.

The worst example, however, was the sanitation that had Wallkill so concerned. There were only 600 toilets on site, meaning there were as few as one for every 833 attendees. People might have to wait an hour to use a toilet; many chose not to wait, enriching the pre-existing manure in the process. Moreover, the toilets themselves became overwhelmed, polluting the air and earth alike.

Max Yasgur, the Jew on whose farm the “festival” took place

The awful sanitary conditions were aggravated by the weather. There was rain throughout Friday night, tapering to a drizzle until Saturday afternoon, more rain Saturday night, and a torrential downpour on Sunday afternoon. As one attendee put it, “It was a quagmire. It sucked your shoes off. It was not only mud, but cow manure and it was so dark it looked like chocolate syrup.”

Efforts to deal with the fetid muck led to one of the two deaths at Woodstock. The mud was inches deep, as “[s]odden sleeping bags were churned up with cellophane, cigarette butts and discarded clothes. Standing rainwater was steaming skyward, blanketing thousands of sleeping kids with an eerie fog.” Raymond Mizsak, 17, was protecting himself from the rain in his sleeping bag when a water-tank trailer tasked with hauling away sewage rolled over him on Saturday morning.

Richard Bieler, an 18-year-old Marine bound for Vietnam, also died at Woodstock. His death is commonly reported as a drug overdose, but he may have died from side effects of Thorazine administered to combat an overdose. It seems possible, given that medical services were as overwhelmed as any of the other vendors. Medical providers and volunteers treated at least 3,000 patients at the festival, approximately 250 of whom were airlifted from the concert.

Concert lighting designer Chip Monck famously delivered a stage announcement warning “the brown acid that is circulating around us isn’t too good. It is suggested that you stay away from that. Of course it’s your own trip. So be my guest, but please be advised that there is a warning on that one, okay?” A local doctor reported 797 “bad trips.” (In fairness, this was fewer than the 938 cut feet treated.)

Two of those involuntarily dosed with LSD were The Who’s Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, both of whom have had bad things to say about Woodstock over the ensuing decades. It is small wonder Townshend literally kicked radical Jewish “counterculture” activist Abbie Hoffman off the stage during their set (Hoffman was also on LSD, albeit voluntarily).

Other musicians generally shared harsh assessments of the event. Neil Young, who appeared with the newly formed Crosby, Stills & Nash, once said “Woodstock was a bullsh-t gig. A piece of sh-t. We played f-ckin’ awful.”

The Grateful Dead received electrical shocks during their rainy set; guitarist Bob Weir has spoken of trying to live it down, while drummer Mickey Hart claimed it was “the worst we ever played.” Creedence Clearwater Revival followed the Dead after midnight. John Fogerty looked out from the stage to see something “like a painting of a Dante scene, just bodies from hell, all intertwined and asleep, covered with mud.” Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick succinctly described Woodstock as “a bunch of stupid slobs in the mud.”

Townshend’s assessment was, if anything, more devastating: “All these hippies wandering about thinking the world was going to be different from that day on. As a cynical English –ssh-le, I walked through it all and felt like spitting on the lot of them, trying to make them realize that nothing had changed and nothing was going to change. Not only that, what they thought was an alternative society was basically a field full of six-foot-deep mud laced with LSD. If that was the world they wanted to live in, then f— the lot of them.”

Townshend captures the larger sense in which Woodstock was a mass hallucination experienced well beyond Yasgur’s farm.

Thank you, National Vanguard, for this wonderful article! It describes both the real Woodstock event and the real idiots who attended. I use this article to torment older family members – Commie-lib 1960s Hippie cousins to whom I have always been the “family pet Nazi”. The musicians on the scene speak the truth about the spoiled, moronic American slackers who attended the mud-fest. Amazing commentary from Peter Townshend.

Also like the one they had back in 1994. That was a total kikefest and all of the mayhem that accompanied that.

Woodstock ’99 fared poorly in treatment of its patrons also; it seems the original concert set a standard in that regard: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/19-worst-things-about-woodstock-99-176052/ Talents Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, Megadeth, and Bush made it worthwhile. Godsmack as negroid-repellent is almost as good as Celine Dion: https://youtu.be/Qj2v1vfp5v8

Again… SethMoto101 there are Jewish members in the bands you mentioned and they are NOT talented. Let’s go through it. Limp Bizkit has a Jew, DJ Lethal, Megadeth has Marty Friedman and Dave Mustaine both Jewish and finally Bush has that Half Jewish on his Father’s side singer Gavin Rossdale. None of these musicians and singers are talented.
Sorry.

Thanks for the info. Godsmack and Bush were the only ones I listened to regularly (I’m not into the others’ genres). Rossdale is a shocker. Stop listening to Bush? I like techno trance, and suspect that some of the mixers, such as Tiesto, are [partly] jewish, but never researched it. Is that wrong? It raises a much larger question on whether whites must always divorce jews and part-jews from their daily lives by vetting associations beforehand. I’ve had medical procedures ordered and analyzed by non-whites. I wasn’t going to put that off waiting for the white physicians in my network to accept new patients or earn more review stars. More importantly, does the NA have a policy that requires due diligence on the ethnic backgrounds of people whom its members… Read more »

All the bootlegs I heard from Woodstock attest to this.
Jimi Hendrix’s band was so horrible that they only put microphones on Hendrix himself and the drummer.

The fact that boomers act like this was the defining cultural moment of the 20th century is pathetic.

It was just one of literally hundreds of outdoor rock festivals from about 1967 to about 1975 or so.

Woodstock–Woodstock Nation is the largest White music venue in all the pages of history. Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Arlo Guthrie, the son of Woody Guthrie were among many talented musicians.

Embroidered clothes, robe type gowns with Celtic design, flowers and painted faces suggest a wanting call back to ancient pagan Europe: Scots, Picts, Black Forest, wherever.

CC. Are you a Jew or Jew lover? The reason I ask is you said Woodstock Nation is the largest White music venue in all the pages of history. Um… Look let’s just look at the musicians and singers you stated, okay: First off Jefferson Airplane. Marty Balin (Half Jewish on Father’s side), Jack Casady (Half Jewish on Father’s Side) Spencer Dryden was Jewish and Jorma Kaukonen Jewish. And Arlo Guthrie was Jewish on his Mother’s side which makes him a Jew. And that’s just a handful of Jews there were many more there it was not a White nation. I don’t know what you’ve been smoking but Woodstock was a full out Jewish event and as we all know Jews are NOT WHITE! P.s. Rosemary are you sure that… Read more »

My goodness, Karl, that’s an awful lot of Jews! Joe McDonald, Jewish? Who knew? Joe McDonald (of Country Joe And The Fish) Barry Melton (of Country Joe And The Fish) Mark Kapner (of Country Joe And The Fish) Doug Meltzer (of Country Joe And The Fish) I was on my second tour in Vietnam when the festival of “Peace & Music” happened. I remember that Vietnam song by “Country Joe” and his fish, but was almost totally ignorant of the JQ back then, so didn’t give much thought to the subversive anti-war lyrics. Vietnam was a shitty war but it was the only one my generation had, so we did our thing, killing communists on the other side of the planet, and the Jew-led, anti-war (and anti-everything else) hippies were… Read more »

Karl: I read your insult. The population of White people at Woodstock far out numbered the population of Jews. It was a live music venue and it rained. Nobody said it was perfect. It was an effort. Those who do nothing criticize The high school I went to was covered with rodeo cowboys, bikers, middle of the roaders, long-haired rednecks and hippies. We didn’t turn on each other because of different stereotypes. We were White and from the same generation–the terrible Boomers (guns, knives and ropes). Turn on, Tune in, Drop out: The southern boys also Dropped Out in the 1960s. We had to fight the criminal establishment–the Federals– to maintain White separation. I recall hippies denouncing the Jew god as violent and jealous. Most of them understood the man… Read more »

Everything in this article rings true except for the fact that the owner of the land was a *Jewish* farmer. Never heard of one of those. As Peter Griffin (Family Guy) put it: “Jews are good at everything. Well, except manual labor.”

Rodeo Kings and Bikers produced men, Woodstock produced a generation of doped up wimps whom have destroyed our “present”. The same musicians were paraded at every music festival across the world, along with the mouthings of the Jew Dylan who bought a “fighter plane” for Israel, spreading the filth of the Laurel Canyon paedophiles with them.

Bob Dylan was discredited by his support of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, along with Muhammed Ali, whose draft evasion was not a bar to jew Howard Cosell’s bantering with the negroid which ultimately built acceptance by the boobs.

It all comes down to how deep-rooted your culture is. Cowboys, Hippies and Bikers–In Texas we called it running with the Ropers, Dopers and Chokers. We were the folk. The Armadillo World Headquarters: Austin’s answer to Carnegie Hall: Hippies, rednecks, cowboys and businessmen all under the same roof. Marijuana tolerated in the music hall. Willie Nelson’s Dripping Springs festival was billed as the largest country music festival ever. Around 60,000 people attended. Nelson said:” It was actually the first time the hippies and the rednecks had gotten together listening to country music.” Outlaw Country singer David Alan Coe said that in Texas the talk turned to outlaw.

Some here are being a bit rough on the Woodstock festival goers, we didn’t have an internet back then so imagine the control the jews’ had on everybody’s minds, especially young people! I almost went to Woodstock and I would have been one of the youngest there, about 4 or 5 of us agreed to meet at the corner we hung out at the first day and hitchhike up from Philly even though we didn’t really know where it was but I was the only one who showed up at the corner so that was that. To us though Woodstock was just going to be a big party and adventure. Quite a few older guys and brothers that we knew had already been killed or maimed over there in ‘Nam,… Read more »

No problem, Karl. My reputation at this website stays at the bottom.

Interesting facts about the formidable Austin Music Scene in reference to the salty mix of stereotypes. Texan outlaw singer Michael Martin Murphy popularized the term “cosmic cowboy,” a catch word that soon caught on in an attempt to describe the part-hippie, part redneck values of the Austin crowd.

Texan Outlaw singer Kristofferson summed up the contradiction in his well-known song “The Pilgrim.”

“He’s a Poet, He’s a Picker, He’s a Prophet, He’s a Pusher, He’s a Pilgrim and a Preacher and a Problem when He’s Stoned…

Here are some Jewish singers and musicians you should avoid. If you want, if you want. I don’t want to be a dictator… Or do I? :))

Beastie Boys (Ad Rock is half Jewish on his Father’s side, but the rest are/were full blown Jews)
Beck
Bob Dylan (King of the Jews according to the Hebrews, terrible singer)
Art Garfunkel (What a stupid surname)
Jane’s Addiction (2 Jews. Degenerate Perry Farrel and Steve Perkins)
Carole King
Randy Newman (Terrible singer)
Paul Simon (Hypocrite)
Phil Spector (Murderer)
Lou Reed (Degenerate)

Anyway… That’s just a handful. There’s millions nay billions of others. Unfortunately.

My old ‘cc email’ is blocked by the spam filter. By 1969, America was the largest Jewish Center in the World. Cutting Woodstock to shreds because White teenagers and twenty-something made history at a rock and roll music venue makes no sense. Anybody who thinks the ol’ peace culture was controlled by Jews has their hat on backward. The culture had no doctrine, no mission. It was at large. Activist Jews were Yippies. Boomers at Woodstock Nation–Boomers coming home in body bags as fast as the planes can fly–Boomers repulsing forced amalgamation in the South. Everything happening at the same time. The last White youth generation to illustrate the courage of its conviction–to stay White–to call black music nigger music. So the hippies were nonconformist; so were racist teenagers and… Read more »
